Happy Hip Hop Hangover!!



Woohooooo! It's Hip Hop Hangover Friday!!!

I got a great shipment of Unity goodness this past week (Stylin' Stars, You're a Star single, houndstooth background, and Love Is In the Air) but haven't had a chance to play with any of it yet except You're a Star:




I set out to make a card with this stamp thinking it'd be good for my son on a particularly great day in Kindergarten. But as I perused my patterned paper collection, it occurred to me that my daughter is also (finally) starting her school career this coming week, too, so this card could be "girl-themed", too.

It's hard to see in the pic above but all the colored swirls in the mat paper and on the star stamp are glazed with Diamond Glaze. You can see that better in this shot, although the colors in this one are a bit off (hazard of taking pics at night under house lights). That's why you also get the "flat" picture with the flash above - the colors are truer to life.


Both the stamped image and the mat are zig-zag stitched.

Details: Paper - American Craft, The Paper Co.; Unity Stamp Co. stamp; VersaMark ink; Stampendous embossing powder; Marvy markers; Diamond Glaze; thread.

Don't forget to check out the AMAZING deals going on over on the Unity Stamp Co. site this weekend! (OMG - past KOTM 30% off!!!) And did you see the August KOTM??!!!!! I know I always gush about each upcoming KOTM but I have to say, in all honesty, this has to be the best one so far. The images are to die for! I can't wait for mine to arrive!!!

Have a great weekend!!
